Mr. G. W. I). Hutcheson was born
October 2, 1841, and died April 7, J!i7.
Time is winging us away
To our eternal home;
Life is but a winter day,
A journey to the tomb.
Just as the new day came,
Hutcheson fell asleep in Jesus:
rounded by weeping relatives
friends, his soul returned to tho
who gave it. Now he slumbers
stained by sin, and unterritied by any
assault of life. Who would have him
exchange his harp of gold, his crown
of glory, hia robe of righteousness, for
the nttui enjoyment or this world and
the sorrows of this life? He professed
religion in eariy me, and ever after
ward was a consistent member of the
Methodist Church. Though suffering
greatly during his sickness ho never
complained, but was always ready to
iaik aooui religion wun ins friends
The writer visited him during his long
illness, and we never heard any one
talk more calmly about death. He was
ready and willing to die. When satitied
that the time of his departure was near
at hand, he delivered to each member
of his family an earnest charge re
specting personal obligations to God,
and urging them all to meet him in
Heaven. And as he lived such a true
christian, we do not doubt his safety
in that happy land, where we will all
meet to part no more.
Dear children, always remember your
fathers good advice. Strive to live
right, and by so doing, you will meet
your loved one again. Mr. Hutcheson
had many friends in our neighborhood
he was loved and respected by all; he
was a kind and loving husband, an
affectionate father, aud a good neigh-
tior, ana win do sadly missed. May all
who desire a happy life, a peaceful
death, and a heaven "beyond, imitate his
example. A very largo concourse of
friends followed his remains to their
last resting place. His pastor, whom
he loved, preached his funeral sermon
after which he was laid in old Goshen's
cemetery, to await the resurrection
morn, when all of God's children will
come forth again, clad in immortaltitv
aud will ascend to reign with God and
the holy angels. There we will never
have to tell our fiiends ifood-hve : in
that fair land all will be peace and love
torever ana forever.
Oh how sweet it will be,
In that beautiful home,
So free from all sorrow and care,
With songs on our lips,
And harps in our hand,
To meet our friends again.
